I am purchasing a property in Kington. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Co-operative have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
Given that your lender is Co-operative your lawyer must check the conveyancing requirements outlined in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Co-operative. The CML Handbook contains minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Co-operative where a lease does not satisfy these conditions. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not restricted to Kington.

In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not notified by the vendor, then a buyer may issue a legal claim for losses stemming from an misleading reply. The buyer’s lawyers will also conduct an environmental report. This will higlight whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries will need to be conducted.
